I had a couple of estimates for basement drains and pump. One system
digs to below the footer installs a drain pipe then gravel and a pump
(I believe that this is a typical french drain). The other called
waterguard installs a channel on top of the footer with 1/4 inch gap
on the wall side to allow wall water in to the channel. Their claim
is that the channel wont get clogged with dirt and the pump will work
less because system one is disturbing the soil thus attracting more
water then is already there. My location has a high water table.
What system would do the best job at keeping my basement dry?
